very little will have changed at all. Yet, people will celebrate as though some great accomplishment has been made. Realistically, the day is no different in actual significance than perhaps a president’s birthday or a Nationally Declared Work Holiday.
It’s amazing that we can make so much out of so little, and I don’t mean that in a degrading or condescending way way. That humans can make themselves so happy about something arbitrary should remind us all that your attitude really determines your contribution to humanity, and that we are all capable of making what we will of the world around us. Some make it an ignorant shithole. Others seek to make it a space of enlightenment.
So here’s a toast to another year of the everlasting* war between man and himself.
